Just a heads up that there are a few events on the horizon from the Triangle outfits who put on pop-up dinners:
▪ The Blind Pig Supper Club, a pop-up dinner series, is hosting a dinner and art exhibit to support the Contemporary Art Museum of Raleigh.
From 5-8 p.m. May 29, the seven-course dinner will raise money for Raleigh’s newest art museum. The chefs are Steve Goff, the former head butcher at Raleigh’s Standard Foods who is launching the Brine Haus food truck, Kim Hunter of Kimbap Cafe in Raleigh and Danielle Centeno of Escazu Artisan Chocolates in Raleigh.
The Blind Supper Club, which originated in Asheville and now holds events in the Triangle, is a dining event where attendees only learn a short time beforehand where the dinner will be held.
The cost is $75 per person. Info: theblindpigsupperclub.com/raleigh-dinners/
▪ ChickenwireNC is hosting an event, “En Fuego” which translates to “On Fire,” on May 22. Tickets go on sale soon. Chickenwire NC is the braindchild of Regan Stachler, chef and owner of Little Hen in Apex who wanted to gather his chef friends together to cook. These dinners are the result.
▪ Snap Pea Underground is doing a series of Thai street food dinner at Midway Community Kitchen in Chapel Hill. Chef Jacob Boehm’s events usually sell out in hours but there are still seats available for these events on May 7 and May 12-15. Prices range from $45-$75 for chef’s table.
Snap Pea Underground is the work of Boehm, a Stanford University graduate who spent some time working for James Beard-award-winning chef Andy Ricker of Pok Pok in Portland, Ore.
